in port richey, florida, let me read from this from "the washington post." host: andy, with that in the mix, what do you think? retirement reform on the table? caller: i feel that the real problem, anyway, is that when you have jobs in this country and you work for, say a big company, something like that, they pay for half of your social security and medicare and you pay for the other half out of your tax money. you send jobs out of the country, who is going to pay for it? these jobs have to be brought back here. are they kidding me? host: how does that relate to our topic? caller: medicare and medicaid, if there were more jobs here. host: so, do not touch medicare and medicaid? caller: got to bring jobs back. the people would pay for it, the companies would pay for it. host: we will keep talking about all of this this morning. president obama meeting with labor leaders this morning. here is a list of who will be at this meeting from "the associated press." host: i want to go back to the news that we started with, general john allen.

for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in both ohio and florida bandit is winning margin so you can credibly argue that vote mattered a lot and if you think about an election where obama loses ohio and florida, you start to think about a very different election. and then i looked at polls and said what if romney and obama had more -- the lgbt vote was 76 obama, 20 to two romney and quite frankly it has been about that -- it's been roughly 3-1. obama, that's the highest it's been quite frankly it's been high all through. but what if they split more or less evenly over romney got a little bit more? if romney had 151% of the lgbt vote he would have won ohio, florida and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the presidency. so, in florida all he had to do was win a little over a third of the lgbt vote to win those states. so, while i don't think that -- in the way that we are not talking about immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy on, i don't think it's quite that level of impact but a little bit of movement in the
will be officially the winter in florida. -- the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we plan 4, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same% of the electorate as in 2008. we got if you got% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, boating rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battle ground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida fr

twice for drunken driving. abraham shakespeare in florida was murdered after winning $31 million. then amanda clayton, a young mother who won $1 million in the michigan lottery. she made headlines when she copted to watch food stamps. she was found dead of an apparent drug overdose. are they unlucky or is there something more? big payouts can isolate people. thrust them into a world of wealth that is foreign to them. long lost family members may hound them. there's a guilt factor, who to help out and who not to. and there's a funny thing about money and happiness you may not realize. >> you win the lottery. and so you spend a lot of money. and what happens is you get used to having a lot of money and spending a lot of money. so what happens is you actually have to spend more money to get the same level of happiness. >> reporter: but what about the lottery winners who do end up happy? what's their secret? experts say they don't lose their sense of self. and they can separate their identity from their money. and what makes people really happy is actually the pursuit of happiness, e
thing for the american people. host: we will move onto native who is a republican in florida. caller:my name is nat. i crossed the aisle to the democratic side. the reason for it is because i believe the president of's agenda is on a positive role. it takes time to correct the course of this country. by the time his actions of three years ago catches up, it will probably be his sixth year in office. then you will probably start seeing the yield of all of the effort he put an two or three years ago. some of us really want to be able to eat that big bird. i think we woke up in the morning and realize some people are going to have to realize how to season their crow and enjoy eating at. if we do not continue to stay on the president's course, we will find our difficulties will not and that quickly. host: the reelected president called for bipartisanship and addressing for priorities over the next four years. reducing the deficit, overhauling the tax code, revising immigration laws, and reducing the nation's dependence on foreign oil. some key elements as he sets out for a second term. w

. victor is on the phone from florida on the independent line. caller: good morning. host: how are you feeling? caller: the radiation is not my kind of therapy, believe me. i want to wish everybody a happy veterans day. i mean it from the soul, not the words that come out of tv. host: when did you serve? caller: from 1948 until 1972. my comment is on the deficit. all the parties have reasons for what is causing the deficit. most of americans know that -- i have cancer, yes. a tumor. it will cost the american tax payers over half a million dollars just for a what i will be going through on chemotherapy and radiation. a few years back, i found that i had implants that cost $285,000. they want to charge me $1,285 for that. i wrote to the state attorney's office to justify that amount of money. nobody answered my question outside of the state attorney's office. that upset me. so i sat down. what would be the best thing that i could do, which i wrote to obama, i wrote to congress, i wrote to all in medicare -- how to solve this health care problem we have? that is the biggest part of the de
situation. leading investigators to a questionable relationship between the tampa florida socialite and the general commander of the war in afghanistan. their main question was a national security threatened? the extramarital affair was between the general petraus and paula broadwell. is a sense harassing e-mails to a woman -- who they say send harassing e-mails to a woman, jill kelley. jill kelley treated thousands of applications messages with the general john allen. possible evidence of another inappropriate relationship. defense secretary leon panetta speaking earlier today and australia says he has continued confidence in a general john allen to remain as commander of united states forces in afghanistan, despite his connection to the scandal. we will hear more on the scandal later today when president obama holds his news conference. you can hear it live at 1:30 eastern on c-span radio. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> the miami book fair international is live this weekend on book tv. we have two days of non-fiction books, interviews and your calls, e-
for the popular vote in the national vote happened for ohio and florida, so the lgbt support for obama is bigger and ohio and florida and his winning margin. you can credibly argue that that vote mattered a lot, and if you think about an election where obama loses, ohio and florida, you think about a different election. then i looked at what if romney and obama had more or less split? quite frankly, it has been about that since clinton, roughly 3-1. that is the highest it has been, but quite frankly it has been high all through. what if they split it, more or less evenly, or romney got a little bit more? if romney had won 51%, they would have one of ohio, florida, and virginia. he would have been within four electoral votes of the president. and ohio and florida, all he had to do was win a little over 1/3 of the lgbt vote to win. while i do not think that suggests that suddenly in the way be are now talking about like immigration and things that republicans have to rethink their strategy, i do not think it is quite that level of impact, but a little bit of movement in oflgbt vote in key states,
to south korea. the florida socialite in the middle of the david petraeus sex scandal has been stripped of that title after just three months. south korea's deputy foreign minister accusing her of trying to accuse the post for personal gain. >>> and it is 5:17 in the morning. time for early read, your local news making national headlines. first a story in the central illinois where a tied dewitt county race was decided, yeah, you saw it, by a coin toss. and the winner, well he's not happy about it. he says he didn't want to win by gambling so he's refusing to take the nominal pay he gets for the job. the defeated incumbent, guess what? he's not happy about it, either. he's looking into a recount. >>> smoke on the water from hawaii's star advertiser. for the first time in about a year, lava from hawaii's kilauea volcano has reached the ocean. look at this really cool pictures for you. a local station reported some sightseers to the area to get a closer look. the guides, they warn against this, folks, saying a lava shelf may collapse. the last time someone died in a collapse and that was
. in ohio they're doing a fantastic job. florida looks like a tremendous job. north carolina, virginia. wisconnin, we know what kind of job they're capable of doing because we saw it in the scott walker gubernatorial race earlier this year. same people, same fountain to -- same phone centers. the other battleground states we are seeing as well. one of the reasons the republicans are going into pennsylvania, the state party chairman has done a terrific job with a massive ground game in the state of pennsylvania, same in michigan. the state republican chairman, 23 phone centers operating, humming and a presidential election year level in a state that has not drawn until recently much advertisement. now some of the outside groups are moving in, including crossroads, a group i am associated with. and part of the reason, looking at people like show stack in michigan and what the michigan gop has done and probably some of pennsylvania, and the republicans are pounding away on the ground game. we will see how well it does on election day. lou: real quickly, the economy, jobs, is that going to
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
that and does not decide to go for the budget, it will probably be bill nelson from florida who just won reelection. but here is my conspiracy- minded way is going on -- let's say ron wind and decided he really wanted budget and not energy, who would be chairman? mary landrieu -- a complete nightmare for the democrats -- coming from an oil-producing state she is really not in line with most of the party on the issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide not to long ago where i basically said, so, you guys will do everything you can to make sure it does not happen, right? even if patty murray decides not to take budget, you r will ron widen stay there -- their answer was, we do not think we will get to that point. which is estimated will do everything they can to prevent mary landrieu from taking the gavel. but she is close. and any other on the republican side. is the republican leadership wincing at the thought about new ranking republican members doing damage to the agenda? chuck grassley, installed judiciary, and orrin hatch? >> i think both of them have established their bona
down in florida. what do you say to the family? they say the therapy you did to him as a child led to the suicide as an adult. >> i would say scientifically that would be inaccurate to assume that it was the therapy, but i do grieve for the parents now that you've told me that news. i think that's very sad. >> reporter: according to the american psychiatric association, the potential risk of reparative therapy is great, including depression, anxiety and self-destructive behavior. the association says therapists' alignment with societal prejudices against homosexuality may reinforce the self-hatred already felt by patients. dr. nicolosi says his therapy isn't harmful, and he only treats people who want to change. not true, says ryan kendall. >> it led me to periods of homelessness, to drug abuse, to spending a decade of my life wanting to kill myself. it led to so much pain and struggle, and i want them to know that what they do hurts people. it hurts children. it has no basis in fact. and they need to stop. >> reporter: randi kaye, cnn, los angeles. >> let's get back to the lawsuit
been stronger. >> greta: new evidence in the casey anthony case. the florida sheriff's office now admitting it overlooked a computer search, one that everyone agrees could have been crucial to the prosecution. police say their investigator missed an internet search for foolproof suffocation methods. the search was done by someone in the anthony home on june 16th, 2008. that's the last day 2-year-old caylee anthony was seen alive. the bombshell is of course rising lots of questions. who did the search? why didn't the evidence get to prosecutors? the burning question, could the evidence have changed the verdict in former lapd detective mark fuhrman joining us. good evening, sir. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: i can't imagine anything more damming than that computer search on the last day the child was seen. i'm curious, how does this get overlooked? >> i have no idea. you would think, you have a child that's missing, whether she's kidnapped or you suspect she's been murdered, she is missing on a certain day, and that's where it should start, and work backward in time from there.
issue, cuba, it is also striking that i think president obama won about half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, al
. egypt has taken it up a notch. florida-based pastor terry jones was also sentenced. most of them live in the united states, all are outside of egypt and are probably unlikely to ever face the sentence. they say the court found the defendants guilty of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking islam and spreading false information through the film that mocks the profi prophet muhammad. >> a senator saying it is immoral to have big pay disparities. he says hedge fund managers make as much in a couple of minutes as navy seals do in an entire year and is arguing to a progressive group that that is wrong, morally, socially and he says it's destructive and tears apar aeu a part what holds us together. with all due respect to the navy seals, he's right they don't get paid enough. his report is that it's socially wrong and it's immoral for there to be a pay disparity like that in this country. monica your thoughts. >> first of all the united states was built on the idea of equality of opportunity not equality of outcome. what you have now, megyn is a modern democratic party whi
